I think I know the two people in that photo.  They look exactly like the silhouettes of every person I've ever known ever.

It seems really unlikely that it was a targeted racist and homophobic attack given the location, time, and weather. I just don’t know how the two maga guys with ropes were prepared for the black and gay Empire actor to be walking around Lower Water street at 2am on the coldest night of the last 20 years. A lot about the initial reports don’t make sense. If he was down there then it wouldn’t be surprising if he was robbed though.

The reporting I’m hearing on this probably ought to start using the “alleged” qualifier. There’s a decent chance this is bullshit. I’m not saying it didn’t happen - just that there’s a lot of things here to be skeptical of. Naturally, most in the media are accepting it at face value.

Glad he left the rope around his neck for when the police arrived 45 minutes later, but then asked for them to turn off their body cams? Glad he was talking to his agent at the time of the attack, who can totally back up hearing the attack and the “MAGA Country” comments, but he won’t turn his phone over to police to verify that? Glad these two racist Trump supporters were hanging around outside at 2am in temps well below zero, and that they had some sort of thermos? that prevented whatever liquid they accosted him with from freezing? Glad the police found one video feed of two people walking on the other side of the street, but too bad those two people could be literally anybody and there’s absolutely no video of the alleged assault?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

While it would be completely disgusting for anyone to make something like this up and unfairly upend the lives of everyone who owns a MAGA hat, the one positive thing is everyone would finally be forced to admit who the real racists are.

Yes, and they're apparently two brothers from Nigeria.

Two black dudes from Nigeria shouting "this is MAGA country" and placing a noose around his neck. Both aspiring actors, and one of whom worked on the set of Empire. Waiting for the other shoe to drop, here.

Yeah, “sources” were saying that the brothers orchestrated it with him as of this morning, but they backed off that today

Could be fake news, I'm not sure. Haven't seen any credible news sources reporting this.

I used to live 3 blocks from where it "happened". It was pretty clearly horseshit from the beginning.

Why do Trump haters feel the need to keep concocting fake Trump-related hate crimes? Why do the media keep reporting allegations of fake hate crimes without corroboration?
